Tom Stogdon Sculptor

Tom Stogdon’s career path took a complete change in 1998. Coming from generations of greengrocers in London, he swapped the fruit trade for the life of an artist creating sculpture from predominantly stone and metal. His work is a combination of found and worked material using what he describes as an ‘abrasive washing machine’ to create different shapes and textures to stone. I joined Tom in his studio in Oxfordshire to document his working process and some of the finished pieces.

Wickham Horse Fair

The annual Wickham horse fair takes place on May 20th since a royal charter was granted for a livestock fair on the square in 1269. Still steeped in history and tradition, the centre of the village is closed to traffic as horses are paraded and traded. A bizarre spectacle as this Hampshire village is temporally transformed with horses crammed into the streets, tethered to any available fixed object.

‘Gone Fishing’

 

Vintage fishing--40Meon Springs Vintage Fishing Day

The picturesque Meon Springs is one of Hampshire’s finest fly fisheries. Annually there is a vintage fishing event which is partly an excuse to don the tweeds and dig out old split cane rods.

The rod I cast made ripples on the water
as the fly selected dipped under the wave
hoping to entrance the target lurking there
like drug filled youngsters at a recent rave

Anti Brexit Campaigners

Stop-Brexit-7247-FinalSteve Bray from Wales has given up his job to stand outside Parliament every day protesting against the decision to take The UK out of The European Union. Back in 2017 he started The ‘Stand of Defiance European Movement’ (SODEM). He has caught the attention of several of The Lords and one has loaned him a flat so that Steve can continue his daily vigil. Sometimes a loan figure waving his flags but usually joined by various protestors who share his sentiment.

Stop-Brexit-7212-FinalDays of action take place outside parliament with people travelling to Parliament Green from across the UK. In Steve’s words “Its not a done deal”.

Traders of Borough Market one year on from the terror attack

borough Market-3449A year on from the terror attack at London Bridge, ES magazine revisited the famous Borough Market to see how  the traders have bounced back. Photographing the various characters it was clear to see the sense of unity and camaraderie amongst all who work at the capital’s oldest market. Former offshore fisherman Paul Day, 55, whose stall, Sussex Fish describes the first week back after the incident:

‘I’ve never seen anything like it — the reaction was amazing,’ he says, tears welling up. ‘The amount of hugging! There’s a young girl who walks through here in the mornings on her way to school called Matilda and she came through with a heart she’d made for me and her dad said, “She’s been really worried about you.” I just broke down in tears.’
